Hi Techies and geniuses community, I will upgrade the network card of my laptop GT683DXR, so I bought the Intel Network 7260.HMWG WiFi Wireless-AC (if someone need the amazon link just ask me for it), is a PCIe Half Mini Card, so my questions are: Will I need change the bios or do something to get the card work or is it just plug & play? No, the card just work without any changes in the bios, indeed was plug n play, windows 7 detect the new hardware but didn't found a driver so I download the drivers from the intel web page installed and everything works fine! Will the wireless button in Quick Launch Touch Sensors work with this card (buttons bar on the keyboard)? YES, all the buttons in the quick launch works, even the Fn+F8, so not found problems. Note: just go ahead! is a great upgrade for the MSi GT683 series, and you will have the new wifi standard 802.11 AC. any comment about this would be handy thanks in advance.
This card looks beast! Just wondering if would be compatible with the M18? At this time the 1103 it is only availible on some new systems and uses a 3 antenna array. When available, this could be a nice replacement to the Intel 6300. Review is of a 1102, 2 antenna card. http://www.bigfootnetworks.com/killer-wireless-n-1103/ http://www.tentonhammer.com/reviews/bigfoot/wireless-n-1102
